Who We Are

In Memory of Ronnie James Dio

 
The Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable fund formed in honor of the legendary Ronnie James Dio who lost his life to stomach cancer on May 16, 2010. As we all know, cancer is a deadly disease that robs families of loved ones, and our fund is dedicated to support cancer prevention research, raise awareness and educate the public with the focus that early detection and prevention is of vital importance.

Throughout his career, Ronnie James Dio was a passionate supporter and contributor to charitable work, including his commitment to "Children of the Night" for over 25 years, as well as numerous animal charities. He was an artist that was not only well respected for his talent, but also admired and loved by his peers and fans worldwide, some of which included renowned celebrities, musicians, and prominent individuals from all walks of life.

When Ronnie's singular voice was silenced last year at the hands of stomach cancer, his countless fans around the world channeled their grief into thousands of dollars in donations in his memory. The result was the creation of the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund and in its short history, we have raised more than $1,000,000 and donated funds to the cancer research work of the T.J. Martell Foundation and the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, where Ronnie was treated during the last six months of his life. We will continue to support organizations who are comited to cancer research and education.
